Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr celebrated Mass at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral for more than 80 permanent deacons and their families Aug. 11. The Mass marked the beginning of the 50th anniversary of the restoration of the permanent diaconate in the United States. For more information about the anniversary, area permanent deacons and their ministries, what the permanent diaconate is, and how the role of permanent deacons has changed in our archdiocese, see the special section in our September edition or type “permanent deacon” in the search box.
